Anti-Semitism 2.0 Going Largely Unchallenged

Read more here.

favorite excerpts from the piece:

"Dovid, an Orthodox businessman in his late 30s, is one of the lone rangers on YouTube.....Using the name “CheckItOutNowNYC,” he continued to spend hours each week searching for videos that highlighted a positive image of Israel and the Jews....Dovid labels each video with background information and resources for those interested in learning more. The number of page views is staggering, as are the more than 100 comments he receives a day. But it’s very time-consuming, he says."

“I wish there were 50 guys like me downloading videos and reposting them,” Dovid said.

“Super-large Jewish organizations are really slow,” he says. “But the goal is to get the videos out there. We need Jews to take a proactive stance to educate the public."

A few Jewish organizations are warming up to Facebook. The Consulate General of Israel in New York and the Embassy of Israel in Washington, D.C., both have Facebook pages, but they’ve each garnered less than 1,000 “fans.” The ADL has a Facebook page, too, but it’s a rather dormant unofficial page created by a high school student. (this last line made me laugh out loud. they have a $50 million/year budget to fight this stuff and they don't seem to be doing much at all (except, perhaps, promoting the wholesale giveaway of jewish land to terrorists?)
